For anyone who thought there would be a stand off for the ages between Kendrick Perkins and Rasheed Wallace, they were proven wrong from day one. The Boston Globe has quoted Sheed in some of his comments on what his new impression of Perk is.
"Perk's not what I thought he would be," Wallace said. "Perk's a good cat, a good young guy, laid back, he's out here working hard, out back lifting. That's the kind of thing I like to see in a young player."
"I wasn't sure, I'm not going to say [how] I thought he was or nothing like that, because I can't judge him like that. I know, for me, when I'm on the court I'm totally different than when I'm off the court. When I'm on the court, I'm hustling, fussing, and cussing, this and that. And, when I'm off the court, look, I'm just an everyday dad, going to market."
As for Perkins thoughts on Rasheed:
"I like playing with Rasheed. Great passer. Obviously we know he can shoot. He's got great post moves. Great defender. But really, I just wanted to see how he was outside of basketball, and he's a great guy in the locker room, [his] personality is great and everything. He's a great guy."
Both players are intense in their game. When on the court and playing against each other, they have no friends. Now that they are on the same side, fighting for the same cause, I think Perkins and Rasheed will make for 2 dominant big men with 2 totally different abilities that contrast each other well.
